    to buy or not to buy
    I have wanted an iphone for a long time. I just have a few problems with getting one. I have Verizon and am in contract with them for another year. Also, many of my friends have verizon. So after thinking for awhile about my options, I decided that the ipod touch is what would be best for me. I can use it as a PDA (replacing my out of date, brick sized Palm pilot), as well as obviously mp3 player, and for games, etc.

    My only problem is deciding when to get it. I have been dying to get it, and most rumors are that a new one won't come out until late September, if at all. Right now they are giving away the ipod touch to students who buy computers so I know if a new model were to come out it wouldn't be until after that.

    What do people think? Is there a good chance of a new generation coming out in September or is it worth me going out and buying the current generation?

    It makes it harder because I have been looking into all the apps I want, etc.

    And on a mobileme worth getting for the ipod touch??

    You never know on the release of a new one. That information is pretty tight lipped. I say go for it, and you will love it. I am on my second one and wouldn't have any other right now. My 80gb Classic is treated like a step child! LOL

    If they do release a new one, just get it sold on launch day and go for the new one.

    There's a million brand new unopened touches on ebay and craigslist right now from the 'buy a Mac get a free touch' promotion. Offer a few people $150 for an unopened sealed unit and someone will bite. I just sold mine on craigslist on Monday for $175. I have a friend who sold his last week for $180. If you're leery about the seller, ask them to scan a copy of the sales receipt. They should be able to show you a copy of their sales receipt showing the purchase of both the Mac and the touch together.
